In case you missed it, young designer Brandon Sun showed his Fall/Winter 2014 womenswear collection this past week. Sun, who has been known primarily as a fur designer, after playing major roles in the Oscar de la Renta and J. Mendel fur divisions, has been branching out. Since his debut, Sun has slowly but steadily introduced an array of womenswear looks, and this season, it all seems to have culminated quite nicely for his first runway show. Themed, adventure, the collection obviously consisted of some expertly-designed and impeccably-crafted outwear from an aubergine shearling biker jacket and a deconstructed shearling trench coat to the real show-stoppers: the Blackglama navy sheared mink lace cut coat with long hair mink trim and Swarovski crystal insets and the Blackglama aubergine sheared mink lace cut jacket with long hair mink trim and Swarovski crystal insets.
In between such statement outwear (which also includes a floor-length sleeveless mink cape and a chestnut Nappa Cavalino jacket), it was easy to forget that this collection was designed by a furrier. The gray tweed overlay dress with draped silk, tweed asymmetrical dress with long leather-accented sleeves, and silk organza and tulle tank with silk draping paired with flannel trousers. Essentially, in such moments, Sun was able to convince show-goers that his abilities are not limited to fur. Also: be sure to catch the metallic embroidered sheathe gown with Swarovski crystal embellishment.
